You Cannot Make This Stuff Up

On Tuesday, Barack Obama accused Republicans of stiffing him with the bill for a steak dinner.

“They (Republicans) order a steak dinner and martini and then, just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”

Then, on Wednesday, Obama treated two military members and two barbers to a Father’s Day lunch yesterday. Then he stiffed the restaurant.

ABC reported:

Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill.

Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill.

As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.

My Grandmother: Stop Whining and Fix the Problem

Russ Steele

Power Line is asking: WHY IS THIS MAN WHINING?

Why is this man whining, blaming the federal budget deficit on George Bush three-and-a-half years into his term in office? He must think we’re really, really stupid.

Video Link HERE.

Virtually upon entering office, Obama signed off on enormous spending programs including the monumental stimulus bill. This included a $410 billion omnibus spending bill that Bush had refused to sign before he left office involving mind-boggling expansions of federal agencies such as the EEOC. More here and here.

The putative importance of deficit spending has been a doctrinal keystone of the administration. It gave us the trillion dollar stimulus program that held unemployment below 8 percent. At least it gave us the trillion dollar stimulus program. Remember, Mr. President, you didn’t want to let a crisis go to waste?

Obama’s blaming his predecessor for his own record as his first time comes to a close is incredibly unbecoming. Listen to his tone in the video. The whining makes him unlikable. But it is not just the tone that is off.

You can read the rest of the story HERE.

Why not stop whining and fix the problem? The problem is the economy and the lack of jobs. Obama has skipped multiple opportunities to create more jobs. He failed to approve the XL-Pipeline, he refuses to embrace fossil fuel extraction, funds failed job loosing alternative energy projects, and insists on raising energy costs of non-competitive levels. He has an opportunity to fix the jobs problem, but refuses to do so, whining that the problem left by a previous administration is just too hard. He would not last ten minutes in my Grandmother garden, no whining allowed.
